Windows 7: Can't access one of my machines!

25 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Can't access one of my machines!

I have 4 machines on a work network. All machines are Windows 7 Pro 64bit. Password sharing is on. All computers have only 1 user account you can locally log in from.

Sharing used to work perfectly by entering the username/password of the computer you were trying to access. I did not need to have the same local username/password on all.

Now on one of the computers I enabled the Guest account and I can no longer access it from the network. All other computers work fine. What's up? Help please.
